Pregnant Woman Cake
(Dhahran, Saudi Arabia)
I made this pregnant woman cake as a baby shower cake. The pregnant lady's friend wanted a belly cake with a baby's leg coming out of it! But that was too much! I was too freaked out to do it that way and told her I was going to make a foot print or hand print on the belly.
She wasn't really excited about the idea but I told her no way was I going to make an actual baby leg coming out of my belly cake! She agreed afterwards and loved the cake!!!
I carved the tummy out of layers of chocolate cake and layered them with vanilla butter cream. I made the "chest" area using the same technique and layered small chocolate cake rounds with vanilla buttercream.
Covering the belly with fondant and making the bottom part look like a flowing dress was challenging at first since I never did it before. But since then I made tons of these and it has become easier.
Decorate the cake board itself with stamped fondant or decorated gift paper. To make your cake really special, you can decorate the dress itself with touches of detail from the paper design. You can use your creativity here - you can create it as you want it to look.
I made a few versions of the belly cake and I posted a few pictures, all of them have the same technique. The sky is the limit when it comes to decorating them.
Pregnant woman cake is definitely the best thing for a baby shower. It's not that difficult to make. I hope this was helpful!
